The Voice Kids: 12-year-old Erin wows with Les Miserables cover

Saturday's episode of The Voice Kids saw 12-year-old Erin face the judges.

The youngster from North Yorkshire brought a taste of musical theatre to the stage with a cover of On My Own from the musical Les Miserables.

And the epic performance had Pixie Lott pressing her buzzer for the youngster to pinch Erin for her team.

Meanwhile, backstage, Erin's dad watched on in tears.

Afterwards, Erin revealed to the coaches she'd love to perform in Les Mis on the West End and had yet to see it live to which Pixie offered to take her to see the show.

Each coach on The Voice Kids UK is making a team of twelve singers in the blind auditions.

After two weeks of blind auditions, both Pixie and Danny had six acts and Will has the five - meaning there was plenty of spaces still to fill going into this evening's show.

Presented by Emma Willis, the new series is open to talented young soloists between the ages of seven and 14.

Other acts on the blind auditions this Saturday night included 11-year-old Zara from Nottingham who sang Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai and 13-year-old Francesca who stuns with an Alicia Keys cover.

Just like in the adult version, those that make it through the blind auditions on The Voice Kids will go forward to the battle rounds.

The Battles see three acts sing off for one place in the semi-final, although there are no steals on The Voice Kids – meaning no second chances for the coaches.

The final four acts in each team will then sing in the semi-final for a spot in the spectacular live finale – with viewers ultimately choosing the winner.

The winning youngster will get a £30,000 gift to help with their musical career and a family trip to Disneyland Paris.
